A Journey to Homeschooling by Rabea Boyle

In all honesty, I had never planned to homeschool my children, even with my history in Christian education. I had attended in a Christian school using the ACE curriculum for my entire secondary education. I loved the curriculum and excelled under it. And it was the Christian perspective and environment during that season of my …


The Value of Organization

The focus on any curriculum is usually its content. The most important feature is deemed the knowledge that is transferred, and not the process of transfer. ACE differs. While its academic qualities are first-rate, a high value is also assigned to the principles that are passed through its methods. These are most clearly outlined in the five laws …


Anchored or Adrift? Dealing with Change

Life seldom stays the same. Change comes— whether hour by hour or year by year. Ecclesiates 3 tells us that there is a time for everything: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to get and a time to lose, a …



But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name. John 20:31 Every person must make decisions. Sometimes a choice is easy, like what shoes to put on, or which flavour of crisps to opt for—other …



The wisdom of the sensible is to understand his way, but the foolishness of fools is deceit. Proverbs 14:8 The definition of ‘Prudent’ is ‘acting with or showing care and thought for the future.’ Each human being is moving forward through life. Teachers, students, parents, children—all have the opportunity to practise this characteristic. Prudence is …


Standing on the Name of JESUS

During the closing message of ESC 2018, Josh Pike encouraged us not to be passive Christians, but to be active, because God is in the business of transformation. We were challenged not to be happy with the status quo, but to start something new, to make something happen. Here are a few ideas of how …


Why Christian Education?

As a teacher with over 12 years’ experience, I began to notice how education was changing, and I didn’t like what I saw. Increasingly, parents’ rights over their children’s education were being diminished and, in addition to this, my own children were unhappy at school and not thriving as they should. Eventually, my husband and …


Focus on God and Get on with the Work! by Gill Robins

Last year, I had the privilege of meeting many of you when I spoke at your Conference. I closed my talk with a challenge from Isaiah: ‘Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings’. This was …


TEACH Update

It’s been an exciting first half of the academic year for TEACH! We’ve been grateful to see the total number of TEACH families increase to over 750. We now offer an innovative TEACH training package, designed specifically to orientate new users of the ACE programme. Most of all, we’ve enjoyed befriending so many families and …



Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamour and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32 Everyone has at some point been misunderstood and mistreated; it’s part of living in a fallen world, and …
